Wood! Everywhere! It’s the hottest material to be found. Whether it’s laser-cut wood jewelry as seen below, craft booth displays, or even fun props, wood is going to be the hottest material for craft fairs. And why aren’t we surprised? It adds an instant rustic appeal that always feels so warm and cozy.





2. Crates

This isn’t a super new idea, but I saw almost every booth using some sort of crate or box to display their pieces. Crates give your booth height and will draw your eye upward to look at more than just whatever is on the table.



3. Calligraphy Signs

Do not underestimate the power of price signs and item description written in calligraphy. It will draw a lot of attention from the crowd and you see that it helps add elegance to the craft show table.



4. Vintage Items

Using vintage items to display small items in large quantities. I think this selling tactic really works. The earthly colors and the urge to search through the table to find something new is a huge draw. As someone stood in this booth several others were waiting for that person to move on so that they too could “scavenge” for the coolest item.



5. Simplicity

One thing that never goes out of style is simplicity. I don’t think I need to elaborate on this. Just look at the craft show tables below.
